Ok your laser is bad. You need to replace it. Your laser has a blu ray diode which lights up blue and reads ps3 games and blu ray games. Then it has a red diode which plays ps2 games dvds cds ps1 games. Your blu ray diode is burned up. You will have to replace the laser its pretty simple.

My ps3 will read the dvds and cds just not ps3 games...wat should i do

HI, the optical lens assembly is damaged. you will need to replace this vital part to restore normal reading capabilities.

The optical lens assembly incorporates both the blue ray and regular lens in the same assembly. if one lens burns out, you will have no choice but to replace the entire lens assembly unfortunately.

You can confirm by using a cleansing disc. if the cleansing doesn't restore the reading abilities to the affected lens, replace the entire optical lens assembly asap.

My ps3 wont read blue ray discs

I had the same issue with my 60GB model, but I did not open up the case. Sony will fix your PS3 (no matter the warranty) for $150.

To me, I would rather spend $150 by getting the blu-ray drive replaced than a whole new system.

It's actually a very fast turnaround time. They send you a box which most people call the "coffin", you put your ps3 inside and take it to the post office. Pretty quick and painless from my experience.

No game disc read

Are you using games from the same region? It kinda sounds like your laser is dead or dying.
